Since my early twenties, I have been composing, performing, recording, and engineering soundtracks and sound design for dance, theater, movies and art installations.
I play a large variety of ancient, classical, and modern instruments. I created my own samples’ library and
when needed, I combine them with the most advanced sound banks and computer processing.
I love working with visual media as my music is primarily narrative and my instruments are amazing storytellers. I have been lucky to work with incredibly gifted choreographers, theater directors, and filmmakers.
Laura uses music as meaningful entertainment,
as a tool for healing, a boost for intuition,
a facilitator for creativity,
a way to harmonize a conversation,
as guidance for group retreats,
as medicine for inner transformation,
as a medium to connect to the intelligence of the body...
